mapping a domain to my multisite

I would like to map my personal website to a subdomain on my multisite installation (, so far i have the plugin installed but keeps saying to me that i have to point DNS to a specific IP which i already have pointed to. If it helps i'm on hostgator within a shared hosting. How should i proceed to get it done? Thank you!

    Hey there Marko,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    If you want to map a domain to a subsite on your Multisite installation you need to follow the below steps :

    1: Add an A record to the DNS of the domain to be mapped and point that to the dedicated IP of your Multisite installation


    2: Add that domain to the subsite via the Domain mapping menu.

    As you have already done that, it might be the time it takes for the DNS to be propagated.

    Are you using a dedicated IP ? If not, then you will need to follow the alternate steps here :

    Look under : "More options?"

    Can you kindly try that ?

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers, PC
